    Just be patient. Save a bit. One will show up on the used market that suits you.
    The P22 is too versatile to give up, especially when you really like it.

    I don't think I've ever seen "defects" in grain pattern ever have any kind of effect on sale price, new or used. Actual physical damage is the only thing I've ever seen have bearing on resale value. Your friend may base value off grain quality and how well any given piece of wood will take a stain, but the mass majority of the market does not. I think your guitar looks great and see no "defects" whatsoever.

    This. If you love this guitar, I'd say keep it and be patient. The Hollowbody 594 is not going anywhere anytime soon and there will, without a doubt, be some killer examples being released down the road in all sorts of price points.

    Waiting seems like the logical course of action but it seems everytime I wait for a better deal I miss out.

    There’s no defect. If you can’t deal with how it looks, you should’ve either not purchased or returned it. Or sell it. It’s a gorgeous guitar. If you don’t think so move it on to someone who appreciates it.

    Absolutely not a defect. It's how the lumber took the stain. It's a good looking fiddle and like a lot of others have already said, it has character.

    That would bug me after awhile of I bought it. The last time Paul was in town, he had an owner send his HB back free of charge to be refinished. My 408 developed pock marks from the finish sinking in and was handled at no charge.
